Mental health has become a crucial consideration for career development professionals, whether examining how it relates to their clients’ career development or their own well-being. Following are slides from several presentations at CERIC’s 2019 Cannexus conference that examined the topic from various angles.

Linking Improved Career Development & Mental Health Together – Clarence DeSchiffart

In reviewing mental health and career development concepts, it appears the principles are striving for the same outcome – helping someone to a better and happier life. This session offered a detailed examination and comparison of specific core mental health and career development principles.

Our Career Practitioner Role in Mental Health Intervention – David Redekopp and Michael Huston

In fall 2018, the Career Development Association of Alberta hosted professional-development workshops linking career intervention with mental-health outcomes. This session presented an overview of the workshop, feedback gathered from practitioners about their role supporting client mental health and wellbeing, and implications for practitioner training and practice.

Redekopp and Huston also presented on “What's Known About Career Development & Mental Health.”

Self-Care for Career Practitioners – Michael Sorsdahl

This session focused on a review of the challenges faced by career practitioners by the nature of their work (including vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burnout), and how to identify symptoms. It offered guidance on how to expand and implement evidence-based self-care strategies in practitioners’ everyday life to increase resilience and remain healthy in their practice.
